Dutrow's latest appeal rejected

The New York Court of Appeals has rejected Richard Dutrow Jr.’s appeal of a 10-year suspension handed down by the New York State Racing and Wagering Board, but the trainer will continue to be allowed to enter horses until his options to appeal the case are exhausted.

The Court of Appeals said in a brief note Tuesday that it had rejected the appeal “upon the ground that no substantial constitutional question is directly involved.” The Court of Appeals is the highest court in New York, but Dutrow still has one last option to pursue the appeal in the same court by requesting that the court hear the case on a variety of legal grounds aside from an examination of constitutional principles in the case.

The ruling is a substantial blow to Dutrow’s efforts to overturn the 10-year suspension, which was handed down a year ago. Following the suspension, Dutrow was granted a stay that has allowed him to continue to train, and the stay will remain in effect until all of his legal options to appeal in New York’s courts run out.  Read More

Hit the button before I finished. I do not know why he bothers with an appeal. Either his lawyer is taking him for a ride (no pun intended) or is incompetent, because appeals to courts from administrative boards are rarely overturned because the standard for overturning is "arbitrary and capricious " and administrative hearings are hard to overturn as this standard is difficult to obtain.
Legally, I don't know why he bothers with appea
He'll probably be dead before he is done appealing...
